Liebster Award

   I am still quite new to the whole award business but I believe the first thing I shall do before getting into this post is to ..........  Thank you Nicola Burggraf for nominating me!

  I shall now proceed to answer the questions that Nicola has left for me.

  Which of the following would you choose and why?

#1. Printed books or E-books?
  This can be easily answered for you, I love "real" books that I can actually page and smell the paper.

#2. Cinema or Theatre?
  I could not answer this because I have never been to (or seen) either.

#3. Cities or Countryside?
  I love the Countryside. Hearing the birds chirp early morning, where playing in a waterfall is not unusual, seeing the woods, hills, grasses. I never want to leave the country!

#4. Cows or sheep?
  Even considering the fact that I have been chased by more than one angry cow I still like cows better. I suppose it's because seeing them means I'm home.

#5.  Superman or Batman?
  I suppose I will say Superman, just because bats freak me.

#6. Driver or passenger?
  I'm afraid to say what exactly would happen if someone put me behind the steering wheel. I'll stick with being a passenger for a few more years, thank you very much.

#7.  Sweet or Savory?
  I easily say Savory. Sweets aren't really as awesome as I used to think they were when I was six.

#8.  Thriller or Romance?
  This is a hard choice! I love a good thriller but also a sweet romance story. I suppose I will go with thriller though. I have recently read a book called "The Neighbor" It had a sweet romance wrapped up in it even though it was a murder mystery book. Let me warn you though, walking through my house at night has never been the same since reading that book. Just looking at a hammer gives me the creeps!

#9. Sandals with socks, or without socks?
  Ick! I hate sandals with socks, it feels gross, looks gross, and in general is just avoided by me!

#10. Sunbathing on the beach or by the pool?
  I don't really do either or prefer either. Every time I'm at a beach or by a pool I can be found in the water.

#11. Justin Timberlake or Justin Bieber?
  I really can't stand either. I don't like the Pop genre so listening to either of them is not what I'd call a picnic.

Now that I've answered the questions Nicola left I shall list eleven random facts about me (since it is the required stage two of this award.)

11 random facts about me.

  • I used to stub my toe so often when I was younger that my Mom wrote a poem about it.
  • The weather affects my mood. Sunny = Happy me. Rainy = Blah me.
  • I name all of my journals and then write in them as if I was addressing a real person.
  • I constantly sing in French to myself.
  • I stepped on a live mouse when I was younger.
  • My favorite bird is an owl, my favorite animal is a wolf.
  • I used to love shrimp until one squeaked between my teeth. (I'm not the same anymore.)
  • I sprawled onto the parking lot in front of Eldon's boss when I was riding my scooter.
  • I have been karate kicked by one of my Aunts.
  • I have fallen smack into our creek several times.
  • I have already climbed onto our massive barn's roof where I felt like a powerful, invincible, formidable,....... bunny (duh, did you forget that I'm me after all?!)

  1. Great answers!! Thanks so much for accepting. I laughed out loud at some of your random points - especially the chasing cow. I could relate as that happened to me. I don't think I could ever eat a shrimp again knowing that that is possible. YUK! :) A worthy recipient :)

  2. Thanks for the nomination. I accepted, and did a blogpost to pass it on to others.

    You made me laugh out loud where you felt like a powerful, invincible, formidable,....... bunny. :)

  3. You get the "Tackle Award" from me for tackling the requirements of "The Liebster" with such energy.
    I'll answer one of your questions: fav movie. I don't a fav, but I am recently enjoying how far animation in films has come over the years. I also prefer movies for all ages. Recent good animations: "INSIDE OUT" AND "ZOOTOPIA"
